Four saves in eight years haven’t made it any less exciting for the Golden State Warriors and their fans.

Before dawn, Warriors fans were already lining up along Market Street in San Francisco to secure their seats for the NBA Championship Parade.

The route started at Market and Main and extended to 8th Street, and people were stacked a dozen deep to get a glimpse of their favorite players.

Players were placed high on the buses, but many jumped off during the parade for one-on-one interaction with fans.
